Black Mental Health as Popular Culture: A Black Female Perspective — Whispers of a Womanist

The present fixation on black mental health appears to seize an obscure communal issue from hallway whispers to center stage. While black doctors like Dr. Bobby Wright, Dr. Francis Cress Wesling, and Dr. Amos Wilson engender this transition with their discourse, this is not what we see in the anti-black media. It is particularly, problematic than an environment made abnormal by anti-blackness assumes precedence in labeling black abnormality. […]

Also from the original blog:

The biggest issue for me is the demand and treatment that functions to make black people functional in an anti-black society. Particularly, the return to society as “normal” hardly means preparing black people to cognitively withstand the perils of blackness; rather, this means that normalizing or medicating blacks will resume their roles as societal subjugates or assimilationists.

The system of white supremacy is a means to our end by any means necessary. The medical field and the field of psychiatry play a huge role in sending us to the grave; posthaste and I have seen plenty examples of that. But what I would like to know is how can the most deranged, psychopathic, murdering, thieving, lying, dispassionate, racist lunatics EVER find the gonads to call someone else crazy when their debased asses are the very definition of INSANITY??!!!

It doesn’t get any more insane than hating people who are only in this piece of shit shithole thanks to their ancestors dragging ours the fuck over here. That shit’s not on us and yet, we’re the crazy fuckers? I beg to fucking differ.

My cousin has been filled with every damn psych drug they could get him to swallow, or inject in him to the point whereas the man’s brain is barely functional and on top of that, he is dealing with TBI(Traumatic Brain Injury). The man had an anti-psychotic medication induced heart attack and the racists in this shithole burg wanted to perform an angioplasty on him even though they could find no blockage. Of course they couldn’t find a blockage because just as his obesity, high triglycerides, high cholesterol and diabetes was medication induced, caused by anti-psychotic drugs, so was the heart attack caused by Invega Sustenna. I am just sorry that I did not investigate that drug more thoroughly before he started taking it.

The racist quacks in Minnesota even diagnosed me as having ‘histrionic personality disorder’ because I was injured in a car accident and the injury became inflamed and my entire shoulder was on fire. I went to the ER and at first they were putting nitroglycerin under my tongue as though I was having a heart attack even as I was telling them that it was not a heart attack, it was an injury to my shoulder that was acting up. And of course this goes back to the fact that WHITE DOCTORS DO NOT LISTEN TO BLACK PATIENTS. I was screeching this for an entire day until FINALLY,  the next day, they decided to send me to radiology for an MRI of my shoulder and while I was sitting in the wheelchair waiting on the attendant to finish receiving his orders from the nurse, I opened up the chart that the attendant had handed to me to hold while he pushed the wheelchair and I saw what shocked and amazed me. The chart had nothing about my shoulder. Everything inside the folder was mentioning that I had HISTRIONIC PERSONALITY DISORDER characterized by ‘wanting to be praised’……..for a goddamn shoulder on fire????!!!! And it turns out that the MRI showed a rotator cuff tear and bursitis in the shoulder. And yet I was already diagnosed BEFORE the MRI as being mentally ill when it turns out, I had two serious issues in the shoulder that sent me to the hospital in pain. Whites are insane in their hatred of us.  And yet, this shit is what they had me diagnosed as having:

A mnemonic that can be used to remember the characteristics of histrionic personality disorder is shortened as “PRAISE ME”:[8][9]

  • Provocative (or seductive) behavior
  • Relationships are considered more intimate than they actually are
  • Attention-seeking
  • Influenced easily by others or circumstances
  • Speech (style) wants to impress; lacks detail
  • Emotional lability; shallowness
  • Make-up; physical appearance is used to draw attention to self
  • Exaggerated emotions; theatrical

Causes

Little research has been done to find evidence of what causes histrionic personality disorder and from where it stems. Although direct causes are inconclusive, there are a few theories and studies conducted that suggests there are multiple possible causes. There are neurochemical, genetic, psychoanalytical, and environmental causes contributing to histrionic personality disorder. Traits such as extravagance, vanity, and seductiveness of hysteria have similar qualities to women diagnosed with HPD.[10] HPD symptoms do not fully develop until the age of 15 with treatment only beginning at approximately 40 years of age.[11][12]

“There are a few theories??!!” What.The.Fuck. This is yet another MADE UP diagnosis by the whites to label Black people as being mentally ill in order to discredit us. Everything whites do to us is to either discredit us, criminalize us and kill us. That is their purpose in life; to fuck us up in every conceivable way possible and they do! And I’m supposed to trust them???!!! Not fucking EVER!!!

But this is the clincher!

“Associated features include egocentrism, self-indulgence, continuous longing for appreciation, and persistent manipulative behavior to achieve their own needs.”

So whites stated that I have a disease characterized by having the ability to, in some way, that is inconsistent with their values, and that is funny because whites don’t have any values, achieve MY OWN NEEDS!!! Seriously???!!!! The whites are not saying that I am achieving shit that I WANT, they are claiming that I am mentally ill because I have the ability to get WHAT THE FUCK I NEED!!! That is some straight up bullshit right there! And of course, they don’t know much about histrionic personality disorder and do you know why? Because it is another one of their piece of shit diagnoses that they got from out their ass in order to put some more shit on Black people in this shithole they stole from the Indians and then used my ancestors to build up and yet, I’m the crazy fucker? All Black people in this shithole are the crazy ones??!! For real! Whites better stay the fuck out of my face because I have about had it with their shit!

Once again, for the motherfuckers that are dumb as all hell, ain’t no motherfucker on this planet, crazier than the whites and yet, they get to sit on their depraved, lunatic asses and make bank off trying to get every single Black person on their goddamn killer drugs while others that look like them are sitting somewhere blowing themselves up with meth labs or are overdosing on heroin. You diagnosis THAT shit. I’m supposed to be crazy because I get what I need and yet white motherfuckers hoard money, property, land and everything that’s valuable while denying others the right to live in one goddamn home and yet, I’m the crazy one? My cousin is the crazy one? Fuck ALL y’all pasty-assed, crazy, racist motherfuckers!

Black folks, if you can’t take anything from this blog, take this, if whites manage to try and get you on a psych ward, they will try and get you to sign a paper stating that you want to be discharged, DO NOT SIGN IT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. That is how they get Black people hemmed up on civil commitment court shit and then they are forced to get those killer injections. Let them keep your ass on that psych ward for as long as they want to, but under no circumstances sign ANY paper stating that you want to leave because then they got ya. Whites count on Black folks not knowing the law or not knowing what rights they may have. They have to let you go at some point, but if you sign papers to the extent that you want out of the psych ward, they will start civil commitment court proceedings and then they can pretty much control your life from that point forward. It’s akin to having gone to prison and then get out on probation, only civil commitment can be never ending. And if you don’t believe me, check out the court appeals docket in Minnesota. Much of it consists of cases whereas people who are under civil commitment are petitioning the appeals court to have that shit ended.

I know this because my cousin was under a civil commitment. And in every state that he has been in, they have tried that shit on him, but now he knows what to say if he’s ever placed on a psych ward. Know your rights! Know that the system of white supremacy is trying to catch you up in some shit at every turn. These whites ain’t fucking playing! If you didn’t know, now you know!
